, and i think scott brown and linda mcmahon and a lot of candidates out there are really going to be in trouble if the national republicans now go back on their word and come in and here try to fund todd akin. >> susan, do you agree with that? >> i agree that the democrats would really love to attach todd aakin to some of these critical swing state elections like brown in massachusetts. that's a real close race with democrat elizabeth warren, who definitely has her own problems with some of the things she's said and in connecticut as well. typically blue states where republicans have a real shot at winning. i think the problem for claire is in her own state is a state trending conservative. it's a state where people are unhappy with some of the major initiatives that claire mchas kill supported while p in congress. despite the gaffes she's running hard to hang onto her seat. this is not a done deal as i think her camp would be after he made those controversial statements last month. i think claire mccaskill, the fact she's talking about it shows she knows it's a competitive rac
and abortion. correspondent steve brown tells us where that race stands right now. >> this race is not over. i -- i'm not assuming anything. >> senator clare mccaskill is nothing if not careful. she's maintained a safe distance from fellow democrat president obama who's not popular in her home state. and the missouri senator hovers just a bit more than two points above republican congressman todd akin in the real clear politics average of show-me state senate polling. on undecideds are eyebrow raising 10%. >> this is probably two-thirds pro republican undecided so there's enough there, i think, for akin to make up the difference, if he gets the help he needs. >> help has been in short supply in the last three weeks since his gaffe about quote, legitimate rape. and shunned by national republican leaders including mitt romney. >> basically we lift the barn and they put the barn on top of us. in suburban st. charles county. it's not akin folks are mad at. >> we've probably had nor people looking for akin signs after the way he was treated by the party establishment folks in washington d.c. >> i a
a chance for scott brown to get re-elected in massachusetts? i guess that is the $64,000 question. >> and if mitt romney is running this badly in virginia george allen is going to have trouble too. >> exactly. >> he'll run a little ahead of romney but he can't survive a huge gap. >> if romney loses four or five percentage points it's going to be really rough. all right. mike, thank you so much. have a great weekend. >> happy weekend to you. >> all right. coming up we'll have claire mccaskill asking her why she's not more lady like when she is on the campaign trail. when we come back, can you believe that? when we come back the refs are back on the job. highlights from the nfl's thursday night games, next in sports with brian sullivan. you're just not going to want to miss that. keep it here on "morning joe." mika has jetted in from the south of france. she, too, will be here to talk about the nfl refs strike. ♪ [ male announcer ] it started long ago. the joy of giving something everything you've got. it takes passion. and it's not letting up anytime soon. at unitedhealthcare ins
in the nation that has done this for kids and for teenagers. governor jerry brown signed this ban in into law over this past weekend and tweeted about it. let me read one of his tweets. this bill bans nonscientific, quote, therapies that have driven young people to depression and suicide. joining me is david pickup, a reparative therapist and spokesman for the national association of research and therapy of homosexuality, he is getting miked up. also with me right now is cnn's senior medical correspondent elizabeth cohen. so, elizabeth, as we await david, just begin with what we know about this so-called reparative therapy. >> the american psychological association had a task force that took a long look at this. and here's what they came up with. they said there is no good studies showing it works or doesn't work. so no good studies showing this works. they say some people have been harmed by it, depression, other problems. and this is a quote, there is insufficient evidence to support the use of psychological interventions to change sexual orientation. >> okay. >> plainly spoken. >> hold tha
-elected, and the problem is ebb he could bring relatively vulnerable rat dowli well, scot brown in massachusetts, linda mcmahon running for the senate seat in connecticut, so this could potentially be a nightmare if a lot of the establishment republicans change their mind and decide to go into missouri and raise money for them and ovide money for them and help them out and i don't think they'ldohaivt they have said about him but he is getting a little support even newt gingrich the other day came out and said you have to help this guy. it is a pblem for republica because, 28 and they had a shot in 2010 i should say, and they had a shot of gettinthe majority, buthe ndida whether delaware, colorado, nevada, and they got the minority status in t s a result. >> iell you what. there are a couple of republicans who were throwing him under the bus when the legitimate rape comments came out and as soon as they knew they were stuck with i am had, holy cow. >> the chairman of the republican party, the republican if they changes their minds and go ahead and work for him, that will be a problem. >> and people that t
've all said it was unacceptable what he did, and i think scott brown and linda mcmahon and a lot of candidates out there will be in trouble if the national republicans go back on their word and come in here and try to fund todd akin. >> is she right, mark murray? do you think todd akin could hurt mitt romney's chances even more? >> i don't know if it's necessarily mitt romney's chances, but republicans have a dilemma right now. todd akin doesn't have a whole lot of money. if they want to win back the senate they want to help him a little bit. claire mccaskill has a ceiling of 52, 53 percentage points. aakin is the underdog after his legitimate rape comments, but do republicans try to slip some money in to that missouri race, to linda mcmahon in connecticut? all indications are and we heard it from the head of the republican senatorial committee they don't see them helping out todd akin in missouri. that is something we'll watch over the next five weeks, because this is all about republicans being able to win winnable contests. >> mark murray, always a pleasure, sir. thank you. >>
it was like in nar mother's age, their father's age. a lot of people that i the landmark decisions like brown or roe v. wade or the public school prayer decision or certainly they read positive review of the simple rights act in '64 had to happen. i can imagine even under this court today, the court we have right now, saying no to the civil rights bill. it doesn't work there for interstate commerce. i don't know which way roberts would go on a similar question. those issues are close right now. >> it's complicated. one of the cases that could be considered is the voting rights act. that could be overturned. obviously affirmative action is going to be on the docket. that's a very complicated issue but it works both ways. there's a high chance this court will hear an appeal to doma. it could be the first court that establishes some progress sift with respect to gay rights. it could make a historic court even though the politics would suggest otherwise. it works both ways and it will be curious to see not only which cases they pick up in what manner and how the arguments play out because doma co
he did. and i think scott brown and linda mcmahon and a lot of candidates out there are really going to be in trouble if the republicans go back on their word and try to fund todd akin. >> a lot of republicans -- >> reince priebus drew the line. how is he going to come back. sn. >> jim demint is backing him. there's a substantial section of the party that supports akin. when i was very republican national convention, i saw more than a few todd akin buttons. they're torn in two different directions. on the other hand, there's a lot of voices within the party that want to see them hurting up for his own. >> he's number ten on the list of things that's hurting romney. >> but it does go back to what you say at the start, you have to tie this back to mitt romney, back to women. this is back when people wanted to ban child labor. i don't think there's a woman in america who has looked at the facts that say i want to be free to get less money for the same day's work. >> would president obama's team in a position of strength with all of this happening go down and try to grab missouri. it's n
. they were trying to push that on other candidates running in more liberal areas, for example, scott brown in massachusetts. they are trying to use it to divide the republican party. and somewhat effectively. >> lynn, i want before i let you get out of here, you cover chicago politics very closely. came across the article about jesse jackson jr. and we haven't seen him in a while. he has held that seat since 1995. some are saying that as long as congressman jackson has a pulse, he will win that district. it seems kind of surprising for those of us outside chicago. is he a shoo-in at this point? >> let me explain. i've been reporting this for some time. even though no one has seen him in public since june 16th when he checked himself into the emergency room in george washington hospital, he really has nominal opposition. it is a heavily democratic district. he has a war chest of as of june it was $900,000. and while there is an independent out there and a republican nominee, they have raised virtually no money and are not running real campaigns. however, there is a demand for jackson to be
moves forward. the impact could be just as significant as the well mound brown vs. board of education, a landmark supreme court case in which the court declared state laws establishing separate public schools for black and white student was unconstitutional. some seemed to think that one of the candidates, and i won't name which one, stands for turning back clock in many ways. essentially, minority voter participation will play an integral role in picking the winner of this year's presidential election. the town hall meeting tonight will strategically discussed the who and why minority voter participation and awareness can bring to the racial and ethnic minorities. the moderator for tonight's meeting is none other than roland martin you have seen him on cnn and you have heard him on the radio. he is a national award winning journalist and an author, a commentator where he has " washington watch." and he is a cnn analysis -- cnn analyst appearing on many shows. without further ado, i get your moderator, mr. roland martin. [applause] >> thank you very much. i'm certainly glad to be here
there. ken scott brown withstand the blue tide there? -- can scott brown withstand the blue tide there? right now, the democrats are doing well. you have a candidate in indiana who succeeded the incumbent in that the primary. he is a tea party candidate. that it -- i s a -- is a tight race. you have a solid republican candidates. i was in arizona about a month ago, where democrats are competitive. it shows that these races are still fluid. you can be undecided and we can say that the race for undecided voters started yesterday. it will still be a couple of weeks before they really engaged. i do not know if people vote in races like a chess game. i do think people pick and choose. one from aisle a, one from aisle b. one thing we have not talked about is the fundamental dissatisfaction americans have with government. president, senate, congress, and governor, how do they make those choices? >> i have to agree with fred, for the most part. you look at indiana. if lugar had won his primary, i know indiana would not have been on anybody's map. that is not how it is here it is a very tight r
brown is fighting for re-election, a tough fight there, democrats hope they can win one back, fred. >> paul steinhauser, good to see you. thanks so much from washington. >> thank you. >>> all right, as world leaders gather in new york, trying to figure out how to end syria's civil war, the numbers coming out of the country show the crisis is getting far worse. youtube video showing just how risky walking in syria's biggest sy of aleppo it be. 122 people have been killed so far today. the death toll since march, 2011, 30,000. that figure from a syrian human rights group. and now the united nations is releasing this figure. 700,000. that's the number of refugees predicted to flow into other countries. the u.n.'s refugee agency is asking for more than $480 million in aid. as ts is happing, u.s. defense secretary leon panetta said today that u.s. intelligence has detected syria moving chemical weapons at some sites for security reasons. a detail that could influence a decision about u.s. military intervention in syria. remember, this is what president obama said about chemical weapons
? this is janet brown introducing the first lady. [ applause ] very nice. actually, introducing ann romney who won a coin toss to be introduced first. first lady coming over to embrace ann romney before this. so now we're looking forward to this debate coming up. chris christie said, listen, we think that tomorrow morning, thursday morning, this will be a whole different race. do you have that kind of hope for it? >> kahncan candy, when the prest is asked the hard questions and has to really tell the american people why we are where we are and what is his plan for the future, i think governor romney is a strong debater. it's important in the race, but it comes down to people will ask themselves what is the president's plan to make sure the next four years aren't like the last? we haven't heard any plan yet. >> kelly ayotte, thank you very much. we'll see you in the spin room. >> thanks. >> we want to check in quickly with jim acosta and jessica yellin. jessica, have y you have a gues you. >> i'm here with antonio villaraigosa. i want to ask you -- mayor, thank you for being with us. you are a cand

, ahead of last night's ravens/browns game. the replacements just one day after the league and referees union agreed on a new eight-year contract. nischelle turner is live in los angeles. they loved them at least at the very beginning. how did it go? >> four minutes they loved them for, soledad. you know, it didn't take long for the boos to come out. it wasn't because of bad calls or calls that fans thought were wrong. it was because, you know, when you have the home team and you make a call against the home team, fans don't tend to like that. the refs, the real regular refs did get that standing ovation. here's one of the calls in the third quarter about seven minutes in, a helmet-to-helmet hit call. they really heard the boos then. i was kind of taking notes while watching the game last night. one of the things i wrote down, it's kind of hard to look at the refs when you're watching on television. but that really is a good thing. because one of the benchmarks to see if they did do a good job was if you don't notice that they're there. and you really didn't notice that was there. there
